Ride : BMX Glory, Against All the Odds, the John Buultjens Story Hardback
Ride lays bare the harrowing beginnings and the tough life lessons learned by superstar John Buultjens on his rise to BMX Glory, Against All the Odds.
Raised by his poor family on Glasgow's Drumchapel estate, he slept rough to escape his violent father's beatings.
Placed in a children's home by his mother, he was then adopted by a bi-racial couple.
After conquering his own racism, his life turned around, and the blockbuster movie E.T. inspired a love of BMX. Although spurred by bitterness, John's emigration to Australia saw him take his sporting enthusiasm to new levels, becoming one of BMX's biggest names.
Then came the call from California to lead the most famous BMX brand of them all, Haro.
As their global brand manager, he now backs and sponsors riders across the globe.
Hollywood has since turned his unbelievable journey into a movie, set for release in November 2017.
Here, John reveals inner secrets including family murders, hatred, sexual abuse - and how his white-knuckle ride has taken him to the top against all the odds.
